Our son wanted a science birthday party.  There were science experiments and owl pellet dissections; but the biggest hit was the Kermit D. Frog Dissection birthday cake that my wife made.

Step 1: Bake the cake and mix up the Rice Crispy Treats

The cake is simply out-of-box cake mix - any flavor you like.  She used Red Velvet just to keep the theme going.  Two rounds with a little cutting creates the basic shape nicely.  The arms, legs, tongue, and organs get fashioned out of the rice crispy treat mix.  Everything is laid out to get the basic scale correct.
Congratulations on your 2nd prize win in the play with you food contest! I have a party in October I'm going to and I really am leaning towards giving this a whirl to bring with me!
Here was our take. We made it with banana cream cupcakes.
Very nice. I like the collar detail.
My wife wanted me to post a "Thank you" to everyone's kind comments. She is enjoying reading them.
